Like no other book before, Bear: A Celebration of Power and Beauty blends natural history, legend, and folklore to explore the longstanding human fascination with one of Earth's most remarkable creatures. From shape-shifting shamans who drew their power from the bear to the Great Bear that prowls the night skies, Bear explores the many ways that early peoples expressed their fear, respect, and reverence for these spiritually powerful animals.
Drawing on a wide variety of sources, Rebecca L. Grambo weaves together ancient legends, up-to-date bear facts, historical writings, personal observations, and striking artifacts to create a uinique look at bears past and present. The magnificent photographs of Daniel J. Cox breathe life into the legends, giving us the privilege of seeing the power and beauty of bears today.
Read on and follow the track of the bear into the mists of time long past: when bears and humans married, when bears gave people healing powers, and when people could never be entirely certain whether they were looking at a bear or another person.
